Hi.
I am trying to calculate thermal stresses in a cylinder. i have created the model, selected element type thermal solid "Quad4 node55".
Now when i try to mesh, it shows the following error:
"Element type 1 is PLANE55, which cannot be used with the VMES command. Meshing of volume 1 is aborted."

Can anybody please help...
I am using ANSYS 12.1 Mechanical APDL

Thanks in advance

hi,

as the error says you are trying to mesh a volume with 2D plane element types.

For solid use either SOLID 164(8 node brick element) or SOLID 168 (10 node tetrahedral elements) or SOLID 70 (thermal element)

Cheers
